Sometimes, one might want to use btex ... etex to produce a picture object, for example:

label.lft(btex $\delta$ etex rotated 90, frame) ;

A few notes:

1) Hans has recently rewritten btex ... etex so there may be a bug

2) I recently rewrote label to accept a closed path or a picture in addition to a location (a pair), in which case it places the label relative to the bounding box (by default, at the center). I illustrate this above above.
